Will the Real Arduino, Please Stand Up?

For years we have been receiving these wonderful blue Arduino boards with printed on the back.

Imagine my surprise, when this time, it’s a green (teal) board and says ARDUINO.ORG on the back. Not only that, but it comes up with warning’s it’s an UNCERTIFIED board when you use it.

Yes, it’s a knock-down drag-out fight between two founders of Arduino, one in charge of manufacturing, the other in charge of software development, and both trying to keep the community in their pocket by claiming they are the real Arduino. Who wins? I don’t know, but the real losers could be the hundreds of thousands of enthusiasts using these products. Stop fighting, kids, or I’m calling the Super Nanny!
